Lately I have been cooking chicken on Sundays and storing it to eat later in the week. This led to the first, and then second, Chicken and The Egg videos.
I want to state first that I am eating this type of meal while doing time-phased eating, or a kind of intermittent fasting. I basically eat in a daily window between about 8 am and 8 pm on week days. I have been doing this for about a month. On the weekends I have been going for longer fasts; eating one big meal per day and maybe a few smaller snacks. When I am eating these “Power Breakfast” meals, they are really my only meal of the day. I might have a few snacks, like some almonds, popcorn, or seeds too, but really just one big meal for the day. I am also doing fasted-state cardio as well as some other activities like disc golf, when eating this meal.
I would not recommend eating this if you are not on a keto-like eating plan already. I wouldn’t say I am on a Keto diet, but I do eat more of a keto concept. I eat low carbs, limited white flour especially, but limit other grains as well, with the aim to get the most carb intake from veggies and fruits. I eat higher protein and fiber. I try to limit dairy, but do have some. Mainly I try to eat non-processed food when possible. I try to eat more veggies than other food.
Here is the recipe for the grilled chicken:
1 package of chicken cutlets – or you can use chicken breast, cutlets are just chicken breast strips I think.
A few sprigs of thyme and rosemary – tear up by hand
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 to 2 teaspoons of turmeric
1 to 2 teaspoons of ground chipotle pepper (or other ground hot pepper, like cayenne)
salt and pepper to taste
- Rub chicken with olive oil
- Combine dry ingredients and rub on chicken, coating all pieces
- Grill to internal temp 165 degrees – USDA guidelines
**Turmeric is supposed to have anti-inflammatory benefits
After making this chicken, I needed to eat it with something; and so the Chicken and The Egg Videos were born. I just kind of came up with these from stuff in my fridge. Both version were good! Again though, I wouldn’t recommend this meal unless you are already eating a keto-type diet. It is a high fat meal. It is a low carb meal. It’s made with mostly whole foods. Cheese is the most processed food used. I limited that to about 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar.
